Peanut Butter Base

Chocolate Coating


Peanut Butter Base

  • Place the peanuts in your food processor and pulse until broken down.
  • Add a tablespoon of coconut oil and then continue to process until a smooth butter is formed.
  • Add the maple syrup and sea salt, and process until everything is well incorporated.

Chocolate Coating

  • Place all ingredients in a small bowl and mix everything with a fork until well incorporated.
  • If the chocolate isn't perfectly smooth, then continue to adjust your proportions until just right.


  • Pour the peanut butter into little cups and then place in the freezer to set.
  • Prepare the chocolate coating.
  • Once the chocolate is ready, pour over the peanut butter.
  • Place back in the freezer for 20-30 minutes.
  • Move to the fridge until you are ready to eat.
  • Top with sea salt and/or peanuts if you’d like.


  • Homemade Raw Peanut Butter Substitute: You can easily substitute your favorite store-bought peanut butter for the homemade raw peanut butter I use in this recipe. Just check the label and make sure the only ingredients listed are roasted peanuts. 
  • Chocolate Coating Consistency: When mixing the chocolate coating, you may need to adjust the ingredient proportions to find the perfect consistency. I started with a couple tablespoons each of coconut oil and maple syrup and added a bit more of each until I reached a smooth consistency.
